Wilson Ramos Kidnapping: Washington Nationals, MLB Issue Joint Statement

The Washington Nationals and Major League Baseball have issued a joint statement on the Wilson Ramos kidnapping, 16 hours or so after reports first surfaced that the event happened. Here is that statement:

"Our foremost concern is with Wilson Ramos and his family and our thoughts are with them at this time. Major League Baseball’s Department of Investigations is working with the appropriate authorities on this matter. Both Major League Baseball and the Washington Nationals have been instructed to make no further comment."

The statement comes just after Venezuelan officials confirmed that Ramos is still alive, though that is not the same thing as saying they have found him. Authorities also say they have managed to create sketches of two of the four gunmen that allegedly kidnapped Ramos. The Nationals and Major League Baseball have remained silent on the matter until now.
